about

Weldroid's latest album, "606 reasons to live", sees the veteran bitcrusher moving into new sonic territory, while staying true to his unique electro-soundscape storytelling.
Weldroid blends dark, swirling, solemn choirs with airy glass flutes and trilling 8-bit arpeggios, with a touch of in-your-face circuit-bent sawtoothed growl. but in the midst of the harsher static-charged fuzz, serene tones arise: gorgeous, shimmering chords drifting through and wrapping around the lo-fi bubbles and retro blips'n'bloops.
The glitchfactory grooves of "lady battery" and "nitrogen fairy" are particularly lovely, fading into ambient chords layered over stuttered percussion and snatches of echo-delayed female voice.
"606 reasons to live" is a compelling, hopeful narrative; a pixellated glimpse of wondrous hidden beauty. an ethereal silhouette dancing in mist-shrouded woods; flickering plasma glows trace sensuous curves, revealing the interplay of circuitry and mystique.
(Joshua Saddler)
